The Power Of The Witch (1971)


Welcome to the 1970’s.

Interest in the occult was rife and the rise of Wicca brought many people to the craft. Although I am not personally someone who follows Wicca, I found this documentary of interest for historical reasons. It has to be said that this is a very naive documentary in that we are faced with those that proclaim that witchcraft is devil worship and there are some, what we call, “media witches” on there. If you can put this aside and enjoy it for it is (it is very much of the time) then you will enjoy it.

It features Cecil Williamson, Doreen Valiente, Eleanor Bone and others.

Full Moon In Scorpio




This is a very special full moon post. I am a Scorpio and I am as intense and emotional as this full moon implies. The sensitive nature of this moon will indeed heighten your own emotional well-being hence why this is a good time to do some intuitive work. So, I have put together a little meditation dedicated to this particular lunar event.

If you can go outside this evening then do so.  Assuming you can see her, take it as an opportunity to moon bathe. Light a candle of your choice, a good one would be red that represents the fiery passionate that comes with a Scorpio moon but the colour is your choice.

You can sit with your legs crossed or you may choose to sit on a chair/beanbag/cushion etc.

Close your eyes and breathe deeply for the first few seconds and then return to your normal breathing. Feel your body relax from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. Allow yourself to be filled with powerful energy; courage and passion. Feel the strength enter your body and allow the clarity to fall upon you. Anything that you feel may be unfinished or a little bit messy in your life, then this is the time to re-focus and kick some ass!

You can remain in this meditation until you feel ready to open your eyes. Blow the candle out and go to bed. This is a good opportunity to write down any feelings and thoughts that came to you and to record that night’s dreams.
